The doors of my mind opened
For the thoughts to wander about
The fields aided by my eyes
To admire the lush green tapestry
In a hope to make something up
For indulging in a poetic endeavor.
But I got lost in contemplation
About trivial matters triggered by
A spell in the subconsciousness
And I brooded over it now and again
Eating away all my valuable time.

Just then I felt a gentle squeeze
On my forefinger jolting me out
Of my useless and unworthy musing.
I looked down towards my kid
Whose eager little eyes pleaded
Me to carry him in my arms.
Feeling ashamed at myself,
My impulse prompted me to
Honor it with pity in my heart
Wearing a rueful smile, for there
Is no delight greater than this.
